Lucy and Micah

More pictures of baby Lucy (because that is what everyone wants). In this picture she is wearing her blue bow and "I'm a little sister" outfit for the car ride home from the hospital.
Micah was so excited to get to hold Lucy for the first time. He has his matching blue "I'm a big brother" shirt on. He now runs and grabs a burp cloth when he wants to hold Lucy.

Lucy taking one of her many daily naps/sleep times. Sometimes she goes right to sleep when needed to stay on schedule, other times she fights it and fusses for awhile, making us go through the whole list of "tricks" to get her to sleep.
Another precious picture sleeping.
Micah so far has loved having a baby sister. Why? Becuase it means that there has been either a grandparent (or two) or his daddy to play with just him everyday. So far he has gone to the park to ride his bike and play, gone to Chuck E. Cheese and gone to a small nearby lake (20 minutes from home). He loved throwing rocks and climbing around.
He also got lucky and we were walking past a couple that was fishing. Both the husband and wife had fish on the line and let Micah reel in two trout in a row. He thought it was so much fun. They asked if he wanted to touch the fish which was pretty funny when he realized how slippery they are.

Lucy Lee meets the world!

Lucy Kerrigan Lee meets the world at 5:05pm on March 10, 2011. She weighed in at 7lbs. 12oz. and measured 19.5inches. Vitals and everything were great and she did some good crying for the nurses to show that she is a healthy baby.

Jill did a fantastic job and was a happy camper when they got her some drugs (epidural). The nurses were great and took good care of the family. We even had one nurse who's grandpa used to be the pastor at our church a decade or two ago (Ray Wiebe).
Lucy quickly wins over everyone with her big cheeks and dark hair. Yes, that's right she has dark hair. We were positively sure that we would have another little Blondie, but Jill had started to have some doubts the last few weeks (mother's intuition). It's taking some getting used to but all of Lucy's bows should stand out better against the dark brown hair!

Lucy took a little trip over to the nursery for an upset stomach and came back with this precious knit cap. The hospital has several women who knit them lots of these cute caps to give out to all the babies.

Here are those big cheeks and dark eyes. This is her "Who wouldn't find me irresistible to love, I am so cute" look.

Yep, Jill has started the bows already. We brought two bows with us, this is the one that fits so we will have to wait a little while before we start to wear pink.

Baby goat is here, still waiting for our baby girl

On Wednesday afternoon I went out to feed the goat before Jill & I left for the hospital for delivery of baby Lucy. To my suprise our mama goat had one baby sometime that morning. The baby is super cute with its brown ears (not sure if its a boy or girl). I lam a little bummed out that there were not twins or triplets which is common for this type of dairy goat. Sometime this summer the baby will go back to the previous owner of the mama goat. Until then we will enjoy watching it grow and play and do all the funny things that baby goats like to do.

We asked Micah what the baby should be named.... "BoBo" was his response. The mama goat is very protective right now so we just stood back and watched for a little bit.
Stay tuned for more baby updates. We are currently at the hospital and hopefully will have the baby by the end of Thursday!
